..And "his previous high rise, NY Times looks like shit" makes it look like the NYT tower was designed by him. Maybe Chad should have been more clear by saying "looked" instead of "looks".

Did you take any of Goldman? How does it look in person? The facade looks nice in photos.

There are already enough images of the completed Goldman so I didn't bother taking any. I might be in the city again in the coming 2 days so I'll try shooting them if I have time.

Oh and the facade looks WICKED in person.

Thanks. The photos make it look so shiny and impressive. It's good to hear that it looks great in person too.

Beekman is utterly amazing.

I saw this building in person when it was only halfway up. I can't wait for the external elevators to come down and the curtain wall is complete. What a masterpiece.
